the Sawdust Art Festival ~ Laguna Beach


Last Saturday night was my first visit ever to the Sawdust Festival.  Nestled between the mountains of Laguna Canyon, and only a couple of minutes from downtown Laguna Beach, the Sawdust Festival has been a tradition here in southern California since 1968.  The festival features 200 local artists, live entertainment, classes, art demonstrations, and outdoor cafes. 





Entering the festival...
























Marcus Thesing has one of the most amazing booths showcasing his hand blown art glass.  Some of his pieces remind me of  genie bottles.



Gavin Heath also has an incredible booth. 

















We enjoyed listening to two fun bands.


The Sawdust festival runs all summer long, until September 1st, and they are open from 10-10 everyday.  Come out for a visit! 


Here's more info about the Sawdust Festival and their facebook page.
Ciao!

field trip ~ laguna beach


 Laguna Beach is a gorgeous 15 minute drive from Newport, straight down Pacific Coast Highway.  My friend, Nancy and I did a little shopping and lunching there, and soaked up the coastal-artsy vibe that only Laguna has.   


Our first stop was the Laguna Gardens Nursery. They have a great selection of succulents and native plants, and some creative pots and displays.   







Next, was a walk through town... 














 Finally, lunch at the new Tommy Bahama restaurant.
